. >> reporter: the 85-year-old announced his decision during a meeting of the vatican cardinals. he said it in latin and it was definitely unexpected. his last day will be february 28th. right now we are standing in front of st. mary's cathedral. we are hoping to get comment from them a little bit letter this morning. even given his old age and ailing help, you normally don't see popes step down. the last time it happened was nearly 600 years when pope gregory xii resigned. he did so to end the civil war within the church. pope benedict emphasized that carrying out the duties of being pope the leader of more than a billion roman catholics requires strength which he simply doesn't have anymore. after having repeatedly examed my conscious before god, i have come to the certainty that my strength due to an advanced age are no longer suited to an adequate exercise. pope benedict the 265th pope was born in 1927 as joseph in germany. he was forced into the hitler's youth at age 14. he served in the army but was desserted. he led the church since 2005 through a time that has seen him criticize
in tonight for shepard smith. the news reportedly came as a shock even to many at the vatican. after nearly 8 years on the job, pope benedict xvi will resign at the end of this month. his final day february 28th. the pope released a statement which reads in part that the governor the church quote both strength of mind and body are necessary strength which in the last few months have deteriorated in me to the extent that i have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me, end quote. the pope's brother, who is 89 years old, says that he has known about this decision for months but some church leaders say they had no idea. i'm not kidding. i was very startled. i don't know what to say. i myself am waiting for information, for instructions as to what we would do now cardinals. boy, as soon as i find out, i will let you know. >> the last time a pope resigned the 12th in the year 1415. that was years before columbus traveled to the new world. before joan of arc was burned at the at the stake. before da vinci painted the mona lisa. he has no specific illness and

vatican city. >> reporter: the day after the shocking announcement that he will resign on february 28th, more details are emerging about his decision. the vatican's own newspaper said that this decision was taken at least a year ago after his trip to cuba and mexico in march 2012. that's when the pontiff realized he's just too old and too weak to perform his duties as the holy father including, of course, long distance travel. while the speculation now is ripe whether there is any other reason behind his decision. in an interview in 2010 during the scandals that engulfed the vatican and the catholic church including the pedophilia scandal and later the butler scandal with him leaking documents to the italian media, the journalist asked him whether it was right for a pontiff to resign over such scandals? he said, not in times of difficulties but maybe in times of peace when in a peaceful moment one has a right to do so. this is a peaceful moment. the butler has been sentenced to prison and later pardoned late last year and now it is a time for the pope to just let go and let another pers
has resigned in six centuries, there's very little precedent for what will happen at the vatican, but there are a few hints. the papal spokesman announced that there'll be a new pope by easter. easter is the 31st of march, so the 118 members will have to get through that. the spokesman also said the college of cardinals will not convene while the pope is still? office. so that means the popes will not go into conclave before he steps down. the election process itself could be quite short. with jet travel it no longer takes weeks for cardinals to gather. in fact third quarter could arrive early in march. what will be missing is the period of mourning and reflection that takes place when a pope dies. it is still an open question whether the cardinals will immediately fwaer and go sbieng the conclave or take a few days to get into the mood for electing a pope. also unclear is whether without a mourning period there will be time in the schedule for the kwee yet and formal gathers of cardinals which have in the past have been a time when the men who decide the next pope can size up th
